I was told to use all that stuff on my son who is 9 and has had SEVERE eczema since he was an infant.  I have found that using the Vaseline lotion with cocoa butter works wonders and I always use the spray sunscreen. It doesn't seem to effect it too bad, least than the others anyway.

My youngest has excema, I use California Baby or Episencial, Babies R Us has a good one, babyganics? I think that's the name.

Good luck!

Most sunscreens contain toxins and chemicals that can and often do, irritate those with skin conditions. I would opt for a more natural sunscreen, make your own or don't use any at all. You can be safe in the sun without having to slather yourself with sunscreen.

This! Babyganics is great. I notice dry patches on dd leg about six months ago I use all babyganic products and topical hydrocortisone cream if necessary but to be honest she hasn't had patches in a long while and I do believe it's because of the gentle products

Babyganics is fab, I have used their stuff in a pinch and I would again.

I really like Episencial and California Baby because neither have petroleum derivatives in them. I am trying to avoid those, which is not easy lol.

You want a physical sunblock, not a chemical sunscreen.

I did extensive research on sunscreen, and found Badger to be the best. My little one has mild eczema, and it doesn't bother her skin at all. You want to look for non-nano zinc as the main ingredient on sunscreen. No words you can't pronounce, philates, etc that are chemicals and can irritate skin.
